    Zijun Li landing 3F+3T and 2A+3T in practice (not 4CC, but her own training rink) around New Year's day.

    It's been reported that she's competing to earn world ranking points because it affects SP start order for the Olympics.

    Perfect top 3. I love them allll whahahaahah.

    The result would be like that anyway if they skate clean but Satako might ruin my dream top 3
    That is my dream podium I will be so happy if that happens but I'm so nervous because they all have to skate clean and then there's Satako as you mentioned and Cesario but fingers crossed!

    The stadium looks so empty and Taipei is a very populated city-- does it mean figure skating does not have many fans there? No wonder there is no practice reports whatsoever. I mean before the ladies SP starts, we don't have any information about the lady skaters' practice.

    folks on the east coast are better off going to sleep now and waking up for the final flight of ladies if that's what they want to see the most.

    rosewood from FSU kindly provided these practice reports (via a user's twitter):

    Tuesday reports by the same twitter user:
    https://twitter.com/ppsk8/status/425690070264201216

    Tuesday morning ladies' practice

    Kanako's LP runthrough: She nailed beautiful 3T-3T and 3Lz, didn't go for the 3Lo since another skater was in her course. And then she landed 3Lo-2T, 3F, 2A and 3L-2Lo-2Lo. Her jumps had good flow besides the 3F. Her jumps looked solid. Especially 3T-3T was huge and also had good flow so it seems she can expect good GOE for it. After the runghrough, she practiced the footworks in the short program. She looked very calm and in good shape all in all.

    Satoko's SP runthrough: She was in her short program dress. She put her hands down on the opening 3Lz but managed to add the second jump to it. 3F and 2A had flow, those jumps looked good enough to receive plus GOE. She did footsteps cautiously. After the runthrough she did 2A-3Ts, the combo looked solid. Her jumps looked solid in yesterday/today's practices.

    Haruka's LP runthrough: She did the runthrough in good speed, she went for single rotation jumps. After the runthrough she practiced 2A-3Ts and all of them were clean.

    Wednesday afternoon ladies practice

    Mirai's SP runthrough: She nailed 3T-3T, 3Lo and 2A. all clean. After the runthrough she did 3Lzs.

    Courtney's LP runthrough: She landed 3F-2T, skipped some elements, did inna baure into 3Lz and 3F. After the runthrough she landed many 3F-3Ts. Her skating was powerful and also had good speed. Her jumps looked huge.

    Samantha's LP runthrough: She skipped jumps, did spins and footworks. After the runthrough she did 3Lo-3Los, the rotation looked OK, she nailed about a half of them.

    So it sounds like all the ladies' practices went well. Can't wait for the competition!

    Ugh. None of the live streams are working for me now! :/ I hope I can find something before the ladies hit the ice later on.

    eta: Ok, they're showing Ice Dancing here: http://tv-online.in/videoland-sports...82%B2%E5%8F%B0

    It's choppy. buffering like crazy but better than nothing.

    What we figure skating fans have been reduced to. Ah, the good old days of ESPN....

    My pleasure!

    Ot, I've held out for years but I think I'm finally going to break down and subscribe to Ice Network. These choppy feeds that keep freezing just won't do.

    Back ot, it's 3:25Am in my neck of the woods. I hope I can hang long enough for Mirai, Courtney, Sam, and all the penultimate, final group ladies!! The best skaters are in those flights!

    Now they're showing some kind of pool event. I hope they go back for the ladie's event!
